Brashar Litigation Services, BLS, have they called you already?

Brashar Litigation Services or BLS with website www.brasharlitigationservices.com and alleged address in Spain, C/C Los Jarales 1/71 29649 Mijas Costa, Spain, has started to cold call timeshare consumers offering mediation for a refund claim on monies paid for their membership.

The website www.brasharlitigationservices.com has been created in August 2011 and being a Law Firm as they claim to be it is very unusual that they do not comply with the regulations and there is no clear identification on the web of who they are, company registration etc.

The telephone numbers quoted as contact are a Spanish Mobile 0034 603 269 924 and a UK line which can be easily diverted to Spain 0872 111 5936

Spanish Law Firms are forbidden to market their services, and certainly they cannot cold call potential clients offering their legal services.

Have you been called by Brashar Litigation Services? Please let us know!

    IS THERE ANY MONEY TO BE GOT BACK FROM DWVC OR IS THE WHOLE THING A BIG SCAM?

    • Hi David,
      To claim the money you need to have paid by credit card in the past 6 years, counting from the day the financial transaction took place. We are sending you the information by email. If this is your case, you have no need for a company to do this for you as you can put in the claim and your bank will deal with this the same as if it was a so called “specialist” claims company.
      Kind regards

    I have been contacted by a lady called rosie goodwin from brashar litigation services claiming to be able to get our money back from DWVC claiming to gaurantee the money paid plus up to 80% of the cash back promised with the cash back cetificate. I only have to send a court filing fee. and WHEN! i get paid out they will charge me 10% of the payout, I was also told that in the extremely unlikely case that we get nowhere the court filing fee will be refunded. She has phoned me many times to see if i wanted to go ahead , Beware, as it all sounds so convincing !! She also said an ‘Out of Court settlement’ was the most likely outcome.

  3. Now getting phone calls form David Anderson of EFTAG… European Fair Trade Advisory Group.
    They seem to have come up with NO win NO fee….so its FREE of charge they insist.
    All we have to do is take all our documnets etc over to Spain ( but we have to pay for Flights ) and stay with them for three days to go through the compensation claim against ILG that is scheduled for the end of November.
    Sounds like another timeshare marketing company that can show us how to dispose of our timeshare !!!! Beware of convincing smooth talking English men living in Spain.

    I was conntacted by the same Mr Elliot and have an =offer of over 13k euros but they want 10 % to clear the fees with the so called lawyers handling the settlement,he cannot give me this lawyers address or any details and cannot let me see any paperwork to prove that it isn genuine, when asked for his telephone number he could not answer until prompted by another person adjacent.
    IS THERE ANY MONEY TO BE GOT BACK FROM INCENTIVE LEISURE OR IS THE WHOLE THING A BIG SCAM?

    • Dear Ian,
      Thanks for your message.
      It looks like you were talking to a telemarketer still on training! Sounds a bit messy!
      We will send you by email the information about how to proceed on claiming a refund for the monies paid to ILG.
      Kind regards

    I have also been contacted by a lady called rosie goodwin from brashar litigation services claiming to be able to get our money back from Breakaway Marketing Solutions on a no win no fee basis. I only have to send a court filing fee. I was also told that in the extremely unlikely case that we get nowhere the money will be refunded. She has phoned many times, sent us letters & proforma invoices etc etc etc telling us who they are etc so very clearly is desperate to get us ‘On board’ – Beware, as it all sounds so convincing !! She even said that at least 40% of what had been offerred for our DWVC holiday membership could be recovered and that an ‘Out of Court settlement’ was the most likely outcome. It all sounds too good to be true – and undoubtedly is JUST THAT. TOO GOOD to be true !

    we have had Jessica Samson ring two times claiming that Brashar Litigation Services can get us over £5000 back if we pay up front 210.00 Euros. The paperwork looks amateurish to say the least, I could prepare a document like that. Jessica?? said she will ring back on Monday to hear that we will arrange the Bank Draft to R. Sharp in Malaga. I don’t think we will continue with this.

    • Hi Jan,
      Thanks for your message.
      Looks like R.Sharp is going to miss out on another transfer in his/her account.
      Wise decision! Not to be trusted.
      Kind regards

  8. We have been contacted by Graham Elliot of Brashar Litigation Services offering us the use of their services to pursue ILG and DWC to reclaim monies paid out. This happened on Monday 3rd October 2011 with a promise to ring back today ( 05.10.11). Still waiting….(now 8pm)
    With an fee of 396.08 Euros to cover court submission fees and returnable in the unlikely event that the claim should fail.!!
    There documentation appears genuine but as everything is via email this is difficult to check.
    The gmail email address makes us slighly unsure and the WEB site does not have any company registration / information and can they cold call ( maybe they can if they are in spain)??

    Feels like we have been here before….

    • Hi Trevor,
      Thanks for your comment, did they actually call you back?
      No, in Spain it is illegal to offer legal services by phone on a cold call.
      Indeed one more on the black list..
      Regards
      Customer Care

      • As a follow up ,they haven’t called back as yet but we may have frigtened them off by telling him we had no money.
        The bank transfer document they sent was to pay an individual ( UNUSUAL FOR A COMPANY ?) in the name R.SHARP… Iam sure I have seen his name in another scamming Company.

        Trevor

      • Hi Trevor,
        Thanks for the update.
        Of course it isn’t normal to do a transfer to an individual and less when it handles taxes or fees to be paid as we have seen with these dubious companies.
        Let us know if they do call back please.
        Kind regards

    I have just been contacted by George Elliot this evening. Looks like Mr Elliot can’t remember his own first name. The usual tripe of “We will get your money back” etc….. He wanted an up front payment of 350 euros but I had to do it by bank transfer as they were not allowed to take Debit or Credit card payments. Are they a genuine firm or is this just another scam……?

  10. jim mc donald says:

    We have today been contacted by Graham Elliot of Brashar Litigation Services offering us the use of their services to pursue ILG for recuperation of funds owed ??.
    With an up front fee of 397.23 Euros to cover court submission fees.
    I would be indebted to hear your slant if any on the above mentioned firm.

    Further information based on telephone conversation with a Jean Truman who claims to work for BLS:

    She admits that the address shown on the website (and on company literature) is only a postal accommodation address. This is supposedly for the protection of their staff from local criminals, though why that should be thought necessary for a company that deals in civil litigation is unclear.

    The literature and correspondence sent out to potential clients is amateurish in the extreme.
    The email address provided is a gmail address, which is unprofessional, at best.
    She admits that the defendants named in the documents that I received (Incentive Leisure) went into liquidation in January 2011 with virtually no assets, but claims that they will seek reparation from Incentive Leisure’s parent company (Timelinx), who are registered in Panama and operate out of South Africa. One wonders why they are not named as the defendants???
    It is claimed that the defendant’s client list was provided to several law firms by the liquidator. Why would he do that when there were no assets available?

    The payment requested to cover court filing costs (refundable, of course) is to be paid into an account in the name of A.M. Bratley with the Caixa Nova Bank. This person is also named as the solicitor for a company named S & B Associates, who seem to be operating the same scam in regard to claims against DWVC (another subsidiary selling agent of Timelinx).

    • Dear Bill,
      Many thanks for your message and the information, very interesting!
      We have a blog about S&B Associates, already from February, look for Bratley & Sharp!
      Regards
      Customer Care

    One might also ask why a supposedly Spanish legal company has all of its website details in the name of Paul Skinebach, whose address is that of the domain registrar (Gandi.net) in Paris, France. If the registrant details have to be hidden in that way, what have they got to hide. My conclusion – SCAM.
